  1. I have been dealing with the same problems. I have seen a rhumotologist and done many tests with no positive outcome. Just experimental stuff going on with drugs and such. I am hoping someone has some ideas on what this could be...
  2. Hi all, It has been a long time since I have been on here, but I am experiancing new symptoms. I feel like I am moving forward and sinking when I am sitting in my chair. I am not sure what this is. I have also been diagnoised with having inflamation on my rib cage causing chest pain. I am also completely nauseated. I have been diagnosed with Neurocardiogenic Syncope am I getting worse or whats going on?? Thanks, Shelby
  3. I work at a hospital somedays doing registration so I was one of the few at the moment in our county and state to be able to recieve the H1N1...I recieved mine a couple weeks ago and I am doing great, no problems at all... I will keep you all posted if I experiance some difficulty, but so far all is well.
  4. I was worried about the same things with the H1N1 that all of you are. There are two vaccines for the H1N1...the first is a nasal spray with a live virus. The second is the shot with the dead virus. It is reccomended that people who have health problems recieve the shot. I know that it is not avalible yet for most people, but I did get my H1N1 since I work one on one with patients at a hospital. I recieved this shot on Thursday of last week and have been feeling fine since. I was worried, but after reading the info provided before the shot and talking to the nurse who was giving it out,
  5. Sorry you are stuck st home. Today it is kinda cool here, but I am still staying inside just to rest up for next week. Another suggestion is a camel back which is a backpack that you can put water in. I suggest water and ice it will keep your back cool and you will have something cold to drink during your outing.
  6. I have found those neck wraps cheaper at Walmart and they work about the same. They are in the sports isle with the golf stuff. You have to look around though because I have asked if they have them and they look at me all puzzled, I later find them on my own. Smartwater is another thing I have liked recently. It is nice because it has the electrolytes and no calories. They said on one web site to drink one half a glass of cold water every hour while awake to keep cooled down. Another said every twenty minutes so depends on how hot you are feeling and how hot it is at the time. Keep coo
  7. I have had to use a wheelchair before and still have it just in case in my car all the time. I do feel like people are looking at me because I sometimes "walk" my wheelchair around. The world is not made for chairs though as shopping I always seem to knock down racks of clothes or other things. I also have a handicapped parking permit and have been given many glares by people when they see me use it...recently I was chewed out by an older lady because I "stole" the last handicapped parking spot at Walmart. She thought I looked fine so why did I have to use her spot. I try not to take lo
  8. I agree. I feel karma is there, but I dont believe I ever did anything this bad to deserve this one.
  9. Things are interesting in the dating world. I am thinking that I am going to retire from dating, but then again dont I always tell myself that after a bad couple of dates? I had two bad ones this week alone and am ready to give up. I agree with bluesman about dating and feeling bad. I went out on Thursday and I wasn't feeling all that well, so as we have been out a few times I felt comfortable inviting him over to watch movies. So we were sitting there and I got a little nauseated and found myself running to the bathroom where I spent the next twenty minutes heaving in the bathroom, all
  10. This is kinda funny for me because I get floaters and flashing lights as well. With the floaters it is sometimes really right there and sometiems I have to look for it, but always can find it. I asked my doc and he said my eyes were under stress because I wear contacts and glasses cause I am a blind chick without them. I guess I believed him, but not sure if he was 100% correct about it. Never looked it up I guess, as long as it eased my mind I was fine. The funny part is that they are so "right there" sometimes that I follow them with my eyes and my mom thought I was having a bad neurol
  11. I have the weight problems too. I gained about 115 lbs all togther, which is a whole person and very frustrating. For me it is the inability to do anything physical, and Florinef. I hate how I look and find that meeting and talking to new people can be difficult because they look at your outside before they look at your inside. I know I am beautiful in both senses, but it is hard to feel that way sometimes when others view you as overweight and consider you lazy. You almost want to wear a sign that says "Can't Workout, Sick!!" So I know how you feel and I hope that things get better. She
  12. Thanks all for your great responses. I am now talking to a man who is really sweet, but we are just taking things slow and doing the friend thing first and see where that goes. I will find my one and only, but it might take a bit. I am patient though. Good luck to all of you who are also looking. I hope Sara finds strength through this hard time. Shelby
  13. Okay just a little venting. Met this guy a while ago as friends and recently it turned romantic. I told him about my health conditions when we started our friendship and he told me about his kid and stuff. So he introduces me to the kid and his mother and things are going swimmingly. Then on a date I get sick in front of him...I called my mother and father and had them come so he could go through the first time with help. So they get there I pass out and onward we go. So this weekend he tells me..."I dont think this can work. You are too much to handle. If you weren't so sick we mig
  14. Oh my!! I am sorry to hear you have to go through all of that to find out that it was broken!! Good luck with the fixing of it. I have TMJ and have had two jaw surgeries and do you think it is fixed?? Nope. So I give up on that!! lol Again good luck hope they fix it!! Shelby
  15. Hi all... Bluesman, I posted something about dating a while ago when I first became single after a six year engagement. I think you might find some interesting stuff in there. Sounds like your date went good and the after date call as well. Thinking that she is a nurse I am sure she will be understanding and accpeting of your illness. I do have the fainting so if and when I meet someone I would feel more comfortable telling them about my illness before I went out with them, just incase. Hope dating goes good for you...
